Two-week sessions include more in-depth training such as animal tracking and advanced fire techniques. Camps each day last from 9am to 3pm. Extended times are available. (8am-9pm, 3pm-5pm).
Ancient skills. Wild adventures. Deep connection. These three phrases describe WilderSkills's mission, but the center's hands-on programs for children put the words into action. Summer camps take youngsters away from screens and into the three-dimensional reality of the meadows and redwood groves of Savannah-Chanelle Vineyard, where instructors teach survival skills such as how to build a fire, how to construct a shelter, and how to distinguish ordinary animal tracks from celebrity animal autographs. Outdoor academics bring the natural experience to classroom learning by providing after-school sessions and lectures that take an interactive approach to science and ecology.
